We make delivery
Pikup is the milkman, but for your favorite stores. We believe that in five years, merchants will stop relying on third-party delivery services, opting in to do it themselves. Pikup connects merchants directly with local neighborhoods for weekly neighborhood deliveries. We bundle neighbors' orders for delivery, offer social savings, and provide the platform for merchants to collect, route, and deliver group orders.
How it Started...
Pikup started under the name Runerra with a goal to bring communities together by connecting people already out with those that need something. Formed by University of Minnesota alumni, Runerra was created to develop networks of students that work together by picking up items for each other.
We’re backed by Techstars, Target, Starting Line, Unusual Ventures, and early employees and founders from Nextdoor and Instacart. We are growing 4x YoY with plans to expand to dozens of markets within the next 12 months. Our team of 25 is spread across offices in Minneapolis, MN, and New Dehli, India.
